Boy, this is a jolt! When I click on a new Hub to read, I get this loud video that plays, and it isn't the one the Hubber imbedded. It's an advertisement. I know we can't control these ads, but it's very distracting , and I just want to hurry and X out! How do you feel about this???
My other concern with these is that some of them have a 'roll over me' indicator - does this constitute a click - if so, I've seen these on my own Hubs am I in danger of 'fraudulent clicking' by accident!
I'm going to start a log on when this happens. Thanks for the warning about the "roll over me" thing. I won't do that! It's bad enough when we have "pop-ups" that force us to watch something on our computers, but this is just TOO much.
Got up early so I could read some Hubs, and the first two I tried to read had this annoying video advertising "something". It's SO distracting.
I know! And this sort of ad trick is going around on other sites as well. I hope I don't end up getting into trouble when I click on my own hub to check out the comments and accidently click the ad.

Why you think the majority of Hubbers are not using the video feature?I do not see many videos on Hubs. The ones I do see are not really good quality. Some of them skip, and the sound is distorted. I find them to be distracting to the written word.

One of our goals this year is to simplify infrastructure and retire features that are seldom used. Deciding to retire something can be tough, but in the long run it is worth it. A leaner HubPages will not only perform better, but will allow us to focus our efforts on the features that are most...

I WRITE, therefore, I use WORDS as my Tools.With the increased emphasis by HP and especially Google SE, on Videos, I feel that I am being driven to use/create Videos in order to increase the popularity of my writings. But, I,(a Writer in my own mind, at least) try to do my painting with...

Consider an option to display only the first 500 words of a Hub then force the reader to engage with a “More” button or bar. I noticed Breitbart recently started doing this. (I troll the site) I’m sure it improves Brounce rates. Whata think?

Hi, my lenses were imported yesterday and the lenses that had YouTube videos are not showing the videos on the Hub versions. The original video module title shows on the hub, but no video. I haven't checked all of them yet, but this affects at least 8 of my hubs and I haven't found any...
